LEVADEX Analysis Shows Potential to Treat a Broad Spectrum of Migraine ***UPDATED SATELLITE COORDINATES***

Migraine is a common, debilitating neurological disorder that affects approximately 30 million people in the United States, according to the National Headache Foundation. Limitations of oral triptans, the class of prescription drugs widely used for migraines, include slow onset of significant pain relief between 45 and 90 minutes, substantial variability in patient response and side effects such as heightened blood pressure.

MAP Pharmaceuticals, Inc. will present analysis of data from the efficacy portion of the first Phase 3 trial of LEVADEX(TM) at the 14th Congress of the International Headache Society. Data from this Phase 3 trial show the potential of LEVADEX to be effective in treating acute migraine as well as a broad spectrum of migraine, including migraine subpopulations that are often resistant to current therapies, migraine with moderate and severe pain, migraine with nausea and vomiting, and migraine with and without aura. LEVADEX is an orally inhaled migraine therapy that patients administer themselves using the company's proprietary TEMPO(R) inhaler.
